The Kutztown Tavern has been a staple in this college town for close to two decades. It is a roomy restaurant with a large bar and daily specials. The beer is very good, and there is a relatively wide variety, plus a seasonal brew. I would rate the food as “comfort food” although there are some salads and seafood dishes on the menu. However, meals are not especially unique, tending to follow the safe trends we can’t seem to escape from here in eastern PA. However, the shepherds pie is a lovely savory dish, perfect on a cold night, the bratwurst and kraut is great with beer, and the soft pretzels and cheeses as an appetizer are yummy. For a special treat, bypass the restaurant and try the “Tasting Room” (located in its own attached space on the other side of the brewing tanks). You can order from the Tavern menu, or order a few specials unique to this room, along with beer and all local liquors and wines. The bartender is excellent. A fun place to go if you enjoy local conversation with your food.
